New features in 2.1.0.beta3
List, revoke and reconnect associated accounts. Phase 1
One of the items on the roadmap for 2.1 is improving the handling of social logins. Listing connections is supported for all built-in auth providers. Revoke and reconnect is currently only implemented for Facebook. We have also added Google and will add other providers in the near future.
Part 2 of dashboard improvements
The implementation of the new administrative dashboard continues. A moderation tab with related charts and a list of a all moderators with their activity, such as flag status, edits to posts, and staff notes has been added
Now you can allow users to select avatars from a limited set of custom avatars, – choose your favorite images of kittens, dogs and whatever you like!
The new feature is already present in the #feature:announcements category, you will find the details here
Navigate to first post
A new setting per category allows administrators to send users to the first post of a topic instead of the last read post. Very useful for all those categories that contain guides or instructions that are continuously updated.
Auto bump category settings
You can now specify an auto-bump per category, so a certain number of open topics will get randomly bumped by the system account each day.

Per-category approval settings
Thanks to xrav3nz, you can now require all submitted posts in a specific category to be confirmed by a moderator before they are posted.
Allow selecting a tag when moving posts to a new topic
When moving posts to a new topic, if tags are enabled, you can finally select a tag for the new topic.
Support for disabling tag creation for non-staff users has also been added to the site settings.
Responsive admin pages
There will be no more "oh noooo, I have to visit the admin page of my site from mobile! "
The admin pages are designed to work best on a desktop or laptop or tablet, but now most of the admin pages also work reasonably well on a smartphone.
Second factor backup
Backup codes for 2FA have been implemented. After enabling backup codes, there is an option to print and store the backup codes. If lost, they can be reset. See here for more details:
Backup code can be used everywhere authentication code is required if device providing code is not available!
